Staff Pick - The Shack

The Shack, by William Paul Young, tells the story of a man whose youngest daughter gets abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness.

Four years later, in the midst of his mourning, the man receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant, "The Shack" wrestles with the timeless question, "Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?" The answers may astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did the man. Overall, the book is a good read, that tells a story of faith in a different way, using unexpected characterizations of the trinity. It also ultimately asks the question about why suffering happens to people when least expected and to those who are seemingly least deserving. Check out DB067237 to get your own reading.
